Sewerage and disease.
With the introduction of water works the
attention of our citizens has naturally been
directed to the question of sewerage,
though unfortunately without reference
to the vitally important question of sanitation,
and since the problem of sewerage
I and sanitation must be solved together,
i and are taking all the resources of modern
I medicine and mechanics, it is well that our

apparently unimportant matter of constructing
Dr. Frank Hamilton, of New York, adverting
to the well-known fact that the so-called
"zymotic," diseases are nourished
and multipled by warmth and filth, has
recently confirmed by some quotations
Dr. Carpenter of London, an opinion from
previously expressed by himself, that
scarlet fever,diphtheria and other diseases
of this class might be derived from cesspools,
and conveyed through sewers. Dr.
Carpenter's paper appears in the Sanitary
Record for March 18S2, and is entitled
"Some ol the Conditions Which Modify
or Increase the Infective Character of
Scarlatina." The subjoined extracts will
repay perusal ; and their importance will
be appreciated by every intelligent citizen.
Dr. Carpenter says, " I have for a long
time past had my own opinions as to the
causation of scarlatina, and of the conditions
which modify or increase its infectious
character. These opinions have been
based upon an experience which has not
been narrow, or restricted to a practice
among one class of persons or to one district."
He then proceeds to give a resume
of personal investigation and study of four
severe outbreaks of scarlatina; all of which,
in spite of- the most energetic sanitary
measures, continued to recur at longer or
shorter intervals, until the connection
with the sewers, or with sewage sinks was
severed; and the epidemics disappeared
All of these outbreaks occurred in private
or public school houses. In the first example
the school house was connected with
an abandoned cesspooU on severing which connection
the disease promptly and permanently
disappeared; and Dr. .Carpenter remarks :
"It must be evident that the cesspools in
the school yard was intimately associated
with the reapearance of scarlatina ; that it
contained some material which continued the
vitality of the disease germs"
The second example was in the case of a
private school. Three successive outbursts
of scarlatina occured, until, the " water-closet
was taken away altogether." Since
which time it has not reappeared, now a
period of nearly eight years.
"The third set of cases" appeared in an
elementary school. After a fruitless attempts
to expel it, "I came to the conclusion,"
says Dr. Carpenter, " that the
fault in the construction of the sewer sys
tem, which i am about to detail lo you,
was the foundation of this epidemic."
The fourth set of cases was in a school
connected with a large pauper establishment.
"We know" says Dr. Carpenter.
" how scarlatina gained admission to the
infirmary. The washings and excreta of
the patients naturally found admission to
the sewer, and I proved that that there
was a current up the sewer sometimes."
Finally Dr. Carpenter remarks " what
inference do I draw from these cases." It
is that the causation of scarlatina may as
often arise from sewage emanations, and
sewage contaminated with thescarlatina germs
as from personal contact."
Hon. Garrett S. Wall, of Mason, for a
number of years judge of the county court,
is spoken of as a probable candidate for
congress in that district. He is an excellent
gentleman, very clear-headed, and
sound as grape-shot on all political issues.

A Mother's Terrible Deed.
Chicago, June 10. Mary Syeboldt, aged
thirty-five years, wife of Casper Syeboldt,
a baker, murdered her four children this
morning and then committed suicide. The
story of the crime is one of the most remarkable
in the police annals of Chicago,
and ranks with any of the Borgia sensations.
At five o'clock this morning Casper
Sveboldt a rived home, after working all
night at J. B. Campbell's bakery, and was
met at the door by his wife. She was
dressed in a new chemise, trimmed with
lace and blue ribbon, purchased especially
for the awful occasion. She acted strangely
and could scarcely stand.
"Come in, Casper, come in," she said,
waving her hand, " and see our little children.
They are all dead all our four little
children are dead gone to heaven,
Casper. See how pretty they are! Every
one got nice flowers for the angels I"
For a moment the husband was stunned,
and thought his wife crazy. He hurried
to the bedroom, and there a strange sight
met his horrified eyes. Laid out as for
burial were the tour children Matilda,
aged twelve; Anton, aged seven ; Annie,
aged two years and six months, and the
baby, aged less than four months. They
were dressed in white, trimmed with blue
ribbons, hair nicely smoothed and tied
with blue ribbons, and in their hands
bouquets of frosh flowers. All were stone
dead except Matilda, and she was just
Mrs. Syeboldt followed hoi husband into
the room so full of death, and said: "Yes,
I sent them all to heaven because God
Casper Syeboldt was stupefied. His
lips moved, but no sound came. He at
last recovered sufficiently to realize the
awful deed, and then hastened across the
street and summoned Mr. Martin, a grocer.
That gentleman hastily procured the ser
vices of Dr. Moore, but he could do nothing
for the dying Matilda.
Attention was then turned to Mrs.
who was in convulsions. She managed
to tell the physician that she gave
the poison to her children first, laid them
out, and then prepared herself for death,
taking the remnant of a large dose of
strychnine. She died in ' great agony
shortly after seven o'clock and was laid
out beside her children.
It is difficult to find a motive for a crime
so unnatural and terrible,but it is presumed
that domestic troubles caused the woman
to lose her mind. The husband is in such
a terrible state that he can not answer
questions intelligently. Mrs. Syeboldt procured
the poison at Werkmeister's drugstore,
Archer avenue, yesterday afternoon,
and as soon as her Husband left for his
I work last night she coolly began prepara
tions for the murder, dressing herselt and
the children as described.
The home of the Sveboldts is in the
second story of a poor little frame house,
and bears the impress of poverty. Among
the neighbors the Syeboldt family bears a
good reputation, and its members have
been considered honest, hard-working,
respectable people. If the wife and husband
had trouble sufficiently serious to
cause insanity, the people in the neighbor
hood have no knowledge of it. Mr.
friends were summoned and took
him in charge. Matilda, the fourth and
oldest of the" murdered children, died at
ten o'clock, completing the list of mother
and four childien dead within a few hours,
and in the same room.
The place of the murder was thronged
this morning with curious and sympathizing
friends. The room occupied by the
distracted husband, Casper Syeboldt, and
where his dead wife and children are lying,
composed part of the second story of a
cheap, plain, two-story tenement. The
rooms are furnished onlv with the furniture
and utensils barely necessary for
The motive of the woman in this silent,
bloodless destruction of her children and
self may be gleaned from the following
notes and bits of writing found among the
effects of 'the family this morning. They
are by the oldest child, a daughter of
twelve. The resignation shown by the
writer is remarkable. That domestic un-happiness
was no minor couse for the deed
of the mother will be inferred from the
following, as it can be from the few data
supplied by the husband :
"I wish to all in y play mates a better and
happier time ,han I had. So good-by to
you all, for you all are welcome to the
place where I have gone. Remember
Among ..the papers was one containing
two verses of the hymn beginning : "There
js a happydarid," "&'c. Another 'note'tis

"Mary Murphy: Please tell Lizzie
Martin probably the daughter of the landlord
of the house No. 51 Finnel, Minnie
Otten and Lizzie Reymond that I have
forgotten their dispute and forgiven them.
I guess they will feel sorry for it. May
they think of me as their friend.
Other notes read as follows :
Dear Papa: Forgive me. We have to
leave you. Mamma thought it was the
best we could do. I am now in the better
land, where we all can live in freedom.
Your daughter, Matilda."
"Dear Papa: Please bury us decent,
at Wudder's cemetery, that we may all be
buried together. That s all I request from
vou. Mv knife and money is for your
present, "and is in the collar box. Buy for
Anton, Annie and self flowers from the
money which I have saved. It is mine.
The knife is vours."
" For May Murphy : I will tell you the
story of our trouble. My mother was
you know, and thought often of
dying, and thought how if she was dead
how we would be treated, and so thought
best for all of us to die at once, and bought
something to kill us. The baby first,
Annie second, Tony third, and I after, and
then my mother. "We did not sutler much
and we are all out of trouble."
" Rosy Morris : Take the book that I've
brought home from school, It is not mine.
It is the history cf the United States. Tako
It to room 5, to Geo. Capronice. It is on
the lower shelf of the closet."
"This is for Mary and Nell Murphy, my
dear plavmates : i" wish you a hapier and
better time than I had. Good bye. You
are all welcome."
Two or three of the slips containing portions
of the above were written in German
characters' the remainder in English.
